I read about it in a book and it sounded fantastic. But they didn't know what I was talking about!

    They make it themselves in Flushing at Curry Leaves, close to the Main Street stop of the #7 train.

      You can buy it in Chinatown. They definitely have coconut jam at Hong Kong Supermarket.

        I bought it at Johnny Air Mart, the Filipino grocery store on Ave A between 13th and 14th. I don't know if it's Malaysian, per se, but it seems to be more or less what you're looking for. The jar says "Coco Jam" haha.
